We visited the Fishing Boat in Boulmer after a busy day cycling in the area. It was a busy Tuesday evening, with only a few tables left when we arrived. The landlord seemed slightly odd about our request for a table but after that seemed very nice....so I'd urge people not to be put off by first impressions!
The menu offered pretty standard pub type choices; fish and chips, fish pie, scampi, braised beef, stuffed chicken breast, veggie pasta bake. The food was well cooked and served by a very pleasant waitress. Portions are generous, we both had starters - crab cakes and pate, followed by fish and chips. The food was very nice, piping hot and tasty. We resisted the puddings but again portions looked good.
We both had real ale and it was in good condition. There isn't anything fancy or pretentious about the Fishing Boat, but it was good pub grub well done.
